Sheffield United vs Arsenal Betting Preview | 21 Oct 2019

Securing a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bournemouth prior to the international break, Arsenal will look to keep the mood in their camp at a high when they travel to Bramall Lane on Monday night.

Currently in the midst of an eight-match unbeaten run and really starting to show their steel while away on European duties, Unai Emery’s side have their sights now firmly set on securing a top-four return this season.

While Arsenal might find themselves in a battle at the top half of the table, Sheffield United are simply trying to find some much-needed stability.

Crashing out of the EFL Cup at the hands of League One outfit Sunderland last month, the Blades have failed to win any of their last three matches across all competitions and have won just a pair of their opening eight top-flight matches following their return over the summer.

Although the Gunners might still be dealing with some issues on the road, they did secure back-to-back victories the last time the two sides met and Arsenal can be found at 19/20 with Betfair to leave Bramall Lane with three points.

Wilder calling on a more clinical edge

With Blades boss Chris Wilder openly admitting that he was disappointed to have seen his side only play out a 0-0 stalemate against relegation scrappers Watford prior to the international break, Sheffield United have struggled with their consistency since their long-awaited Premier League return.

Despite gaining plenty of plaudits for their plucky display in their 1-0 defeat against Liverpool earlier in the month, Monday’s hosts have won just one of their last six top-flight appearances.

Along with now losing their last three matchups on home soil, there is no doubt that fans around Bramall Lane will be growing more concerned by their side’s toothless displays in the final third.

Now going almost 300 minutes without finding the net, you might be interested to now that the Blades can be found at 3/5 with Bet365 to bag under 1.5 goals on Monday night.

Arsenal’s Champions League ambitions

With the likes of Manchester United and North London rivals Tottenham continuing to show some glaring issues at the start of the 2019/2020 campaign, Arsenal have continued to find some much-needed stability.

Along with opening their Europa League campaign with back-to-back victories, Head Coach Unai Emery has seen his men enjoy a five-match Premier League unbeaten run.

Now climbing back into the top-four, there is no doubt that fans around the Emirates will have their sights set on clinching a Champions League return come May.

You might be interested to know that Monday’s guests can be found at 4/6 with Coral to secure a return to Europe’s top tournament, only behind title scrappers Liverpool and Manchester City.

One man who has continued to shine this season is leading marksman, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon international has scored six in his last seven across all formats and is pencilled in at 1/1 with Ladbrokes to extend that run at Bramall Lane.
